Fossett's Farm Hospital Site Southend on Sea Essex

Sims, Mike Fossett's Farm Hospital Site Southend on Sea Essex. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between 23rd February and 2nd March 2004 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at the proposed hospital site at Fossett’s Farm, Southend on Sea, Essex on behalf of CgMs Consulting. The evaluation revealed a prehistoric pit and possible holloway that is likely to have been associated with the lowland hillfort of Prittlewell Camp to the south of the site. A 19th century soakaway, probably linked with a nearby pipeline associated with Fossett's Farm was also found. No other evidence of prehistoric or later activity was encountered on the site, supporting the view that the land had predominantly been for agriculture use.
